You'll need to replace the starter. The bendix gear is not disengaging from the flywheel when you are releasing the key. Or, the key cylinder may be sticking. If the starter is old, that's where I would start, if the key cylinder isn't binding.

I hear the engine trying to start, but it won't, even though there's good electric power, but with a little push you can start it using the clutch, any idea?, maybe a relay?, what do you think?....


If the battery is not spinning the motor fast enough, it is not uncommon for motor to not start. Make sure that your starter motor is spinning engine over at correct speed.

OR, it is possible that the starter motor has some burnt windings resulting in less rotational speed.

Engine starts when you pop the clutch, so why won't it start when u use the starter? Check it out.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

Truck has electrical power but won't turn over. I think I can hear the starter solenoid engaging. Not sure. where do I start trouble shooting?


Safety first!--Make sure you're in park & brake on-- Try shorting across the starter terminals with a screwdriver,if the bendix kicks in & nothing spins,remove the starter & put in bench vice ,(or hold down securely), & jump with cables.--REMEMBER POLARITY--If the starter spins you are in deep *******---something in the motor is probably locked up.(If the starter doesn't spin get a new one.)

Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day
